Big Gal Yoga - The Plus-Size Yogi Proves Anyone Can Do It!
Famed novelist and philosopher Simone de Beauvoir once said, "To lose confidence in one's body is to lose confidence in oneself." This is the message that Valerie Sagun, founder of Big Gal Yoga, self-love devotee, and yoga enthusiast wants us all to remember.
Valerie Sagun, a plus-sized yogi, is motivating people all over the world to get involved with yoga.
After obtaining her Bachelor degree of Fine Arts in Spatial Arts, she saved up her money to get her yoga teacher training certification. Now with her revolutionary techniques that work for all body types, she has become an inspiration and is teaching people everywhere that "yoga is for all bodies."
Valerie's main goal in her work is to teach people to love their bodies, which makes it only fitting to find the quote "Be the change you wish to see in the world" lining her yoga studio's wall.
Valerie is changing the yoga world and making the statement that with determination, motivation, and patience anybody can do yoga!
